CHIPS stands for Crofton Hammond Infant Parents and Staff – and is our PTA group.
CHIPS raises valuable funds which are used to buy much needed resources and equipment for the school. In past years we have bought interactive white boards for each classroom, replaced the gym equipment and helped to transform the outside play areas. This year, we are raising much needed funds to replace all the computers in the school.
Each year CHIPS hold various fundraising events which include school discos, film nights, cake sales, as well as a Christmas and a Summer Fair.
The currently elected officers are as follows:
• Chair – Katie Hodges and Charlotte Thomas
• Secretary – Sarah Harper and Leeann Tudor
• Treasurer – Louise Jackson
However, we also have many invaluable helpers who ensure that every event runs smoothly. Please do get in touch if you’d like to be involved. It’s a great group of people, lots of fun and it really does make a difference to our children’s school experience.
